You can’t get much more central than Leicester Square’s Ruby Blue. A favourite for post-work drinks and party-ready tourists, it also has a range of spaces available for private hire. The main bar is ornately styled with fresco ceilings and a marble floor, while a terrace overlooks the bright lights of Theatreland. Unusually, there’s also a dedicated conference room, with a projector and leather seating. The restaurant has private spaces too, with a menu of hearty international small plates and a filling canapé selection. Smaller groups can reserve areas in the bar or arrange priority entry on busy nights.
